The Darkest Dark

Written by Chris Hadfield

Illustrated by The Fan Brothers

The Darkest Dark Synopsis

This special hardback edition comes with an audio CD of the story read by Chris Hadfield, plus bonus commentary and The Darkest Dark Song written and recorded by him too! Young Chris is an astronaut. A very busy astronaut. Saving the planet from aliens is much more important than taking baths or going to bed. Because at bedtime the worst sort of alien appears - darkness. But when Chris watches the first moon landing, he discovers that there is a dark out in Space that is much darker than he's used to. It's the darkest dark ever, and he realizes that the unknown can be . . . exciting! The Darkest Dark is the debut picture book by Commander Chris Hadfield, international bestselling author of An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth, with spectacular illustrations by illustration team, The Fan Brothers. Inspired by Chris's decision to become an astronaut after watching the Apollo 11 moon landing at age nine, The Darkest Dark is about facing your fears and following your dreams. Awarded as a Junior Library Guild Selection in the United States for autumn 2016.
